Batson Street Project is a purpose built building in the Govanhill area in the south of Glasgow. The project is a registered care home for adults who experience enduring mental ill health. The building is over 3 floors and offers single room accommodation and communal cooking and social areas. The project works on the Recovery Model of Care and aims for people to live at Batson street for up to 4 years before moving on to a more independent accommodation.

Referral Criteria

Batson Street Project provides services for adults over 18 and under 65 years of age who experience mental ill health. Referrals are made by local authority Care Managers or health professionals. A single shared assessment will be carried out with the service users needs and desires at the centre of all discussions. Service users will be invited to visit the project a number of times prior to moving in, in order to get to know staff and other service users, and to ensure that they are confident that the service will meet their needs. The first 4 weeks after admission to the service is an assessment period after which a review will take place to confirm the suitability of the placement.
